The Lightworkers are a secret society that has been protecting the planet since the beginning of time.

They carry the flame of love and peace to light up the world and assist in raising human consciousness.

They are also known as grid workers, spiritual workers, and energy workers.

Lightworkers serve as guardians of the earth and its inhabitants to spread positive thoughts and intentions throughout the world.

They work closely with guides, devas, nature spirits, and ascended masters because they all have a shared goal: to assist humanity in their ascension process so that we may live amongst unconditional love, peace, and harmony.

What’s your goal as a Lightworker?

Many Lightworkers work as energy workers, healers, and spiritual coaches.

No matter what career a Lightworker chooses as their life’s work, the goal is always the same: to help people overcome whatever challenges they may be facing in order for them to lead happier lives.

Once people learn how to tap into the Light, they are able to see their true potential and change for the better.

The Indigos

The term ”indigos” was used during the 1960s and 1970s by Nancy Ann Tappe.

She was a student of human development and personality types, who wrote books about Indigo children which helped to spread the concept worldwide.

The indigos are very free-spirited people with many beliefs which they strive to change in society starting with themselves.

According to observations by Ms. Tappes, it is believed that these indigos are the result of a generation gap between their parents and grandparents.

While previous generations were focused on building careers, today’s indigos are more interested in self-awareness, spiritual matters, and connecting with nature; they live according to free will instead of feeling pressured by social standards or norms.

They do not like being told what to do.

They possess the ability to be clairvoyant which they use for guidance in life; this allows them to tap into energies that surround us all.

These individuals can also see beyond physical form, allowing them to perceive things before others do.

Indigos are sensitive and have a deep understanding of their emotions, making it hard for them to settle into certain environments.

They feel misunderstood by most people due to the unique qualities they possess which is why they prefer being alone rather than in a crowd with many strangers.

What’s your role as an Indigo?

As an indigo, you are a spiritual seeker, different from the rest of society.

You were born to bring balance and healing back into this world.

Others may misunderstand your wisdom and ability to see beyond their understanding, which is okay.

As an Indigo, your main role is to help those who are struggling and point them towards the light in order to become awakened.

Through this process, you will gain more understanding about yourself and how it is meant for you to live your life.


Empath are compassionate kind-hearted souls, they are intuitive and can sense what others are feeling.

They have a sixth sense where they feel the emotions of those around them to an extent that makes it difficult for them in social situations as their senses become overwhelmed with other people’s feelings.

For an empath, it can be incredibly hard to find love.

Their constant need for reassurance from others can cause them much distress.

Empaths are often daydreamers, this is how they escape the reality of their world and try to process what’s going on around them.

What most don’t know is that empaths have an amazing gift and power within them.

Empaths are here to help heal the world and bring peace between all people, they must remember that it is ok for others not to be like them because everyone has their own path in life.

The Crystal People

They are better known as crystal children and are part of the Indigo children.

Like other indigo’s they are sensitive to their surroundings, highly intuitive, and have an understanding of life that surpasses their years.

They are often described as having a feeling of “not belonging” or being misunderstood by family members who do not share their unique abilities.

They may be misdiagnosed with autism spectrum disorder, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), or a mood disorder.

Crystal children are highly sensitive with a reduced tolerance for pain and loud noises and can become overwhelmed in busy environments.

Including schools that do not understand their need for peace.

The problem is most crystal children have never been taught how to cope with their high sensitivities.

They are usually misdiagnosed which causes them to miss out on the care they need so deeply.

But, they are gifted children that are here to bring peace into the world.

To help us remember what we could not remember and re-align with our true selves and purpose in this lifetime.

Your role as a Crystal

The role of a Crystal and Indigo has never been more important than it is now.

Indigo’s and Crystals need to give us insight into injustices and show their more gentle side.

It will take all of us coming together to bring this to fruition.
